The first casual "Meet and Greet" walk , organized for the new members was held at Edwards Gardens on May 7th. Twenty people took advantage of the beautiful and mild spring day to meet fellow PROBUS members and to enjoy the colourful flower beds, manicured lawns, and extensive rockery. with even a chance to take a group photo under a blossom tree. Thereafter, a group headed over to a neighbouring restaurant for further socializing. It was a very nice way to enjoy spring with new friends after a very long winter.
We look forward to creating many more special memories with fellow PROBUS members.
